Kudu Vudu by Wolfyu Kudu Vudu by Wolfyu
EDIT: Nothing at all is edited about the image. I just thought my two year old description sounded idiotic, so I changed it. :3


I was in a really wierd mood when I drew the sketch for this. I had just done my math homework and was in a drained mood and decided to draw a kudu. Since I was confused and stuff, I decided to do something I had never done before: A semi abstract piece! And dang, it was fun!

MEDIA: Crayola colored pencils, white acrylic paint, and fine tip sharpie on smooth bristol board.

The animal is a greater kudu.

I know the title says "Voodoo", technically, but it has nothing to do with voodoo. XD I just thought it sounded cool.

An amazing piece, and it seems one of our Eggs likes it as well!

Ahhh love Kudu's... and the idea of the crazy horns is very nice. I know it's heard to get lost in designs like that so congrats for not! And I absolutely adore his happy little expression =)

Absolutely awesome. Kudus are some of my favourite animals. Lots on my uncle's farm... they're huge, graceful, dangerous and beautiful all in one!

They don't let you come very close - they're very shy animals!

I am a big fan of the Kudu and this was a very nifty and orginal way to expound on their already amazing set of horns. Very fun to look at! :)

This is very beautiful. You created two pieces in the center of the picture, which focus the eye onto the whole piece. It is very clever how you worked it out.
Besides this, the colouring is very subtle and doesn't attract the eye too much from the central point, which is so nicely surrounded by the antlers.
Brilliant work :)

"smirking" lol, wow that's a really unique and creative idea used here :)

I quickly looked at your gallery and I can see why you think this is your best work, you most put a fair chunk of time into it "

Just nitpicking here but some of the horns in some area's arn't really even, their a little to close together to support it realistically. (Even bizaar things like these antlers could possibly work, in a non-preditor area) But that's only fine picking at it. Good job :)

I was really lazy back when I made this and didn't bother to check weather the horns were symetrical. Heh. ^^; Thanks for the comment! :)

Wow, just wow. That's incredibly creepy compared to everything else you do, and I totally mean that in a good way. Like everything you draw is really good, but this one has more, artistic depth? to it. Don't be offended by this at all as i have less than half the talent that you have, but i really like it!

This is so excellent, Wolfie!! (Sorry I haven't gotten the chance to comment recently... ^^;) You should make a print out of it. Would you mind much if I printed it off and hung it on my wall? ^_^

Anyway, the shading is absolutely wonderful. And the design is just great. Haha, I love that little shiny ball up there, too! Keep it up!
